Not familiar with 129.4.
124.9 for ZNY low at IPT yes, but even that is tough because there is a mountain between myself and IPT.
I am on a hill, above trees, but not all of them. I will most likely go with the LMR-400. Oh yes, the Heliax would be great!
I want to get that RG-8X off and go with the heavier cable to reduce signal loss.
Someone made mention of the JFK arrivals. I did monitor 121.325 for about an hour this evening on the scanner here at work, but nothing heard.
I will keep an ear on it, and if I can get the controller good and clear may consider adding it to the scan list in the future, if there is
enough interest in it. I have 7 frequencies going now, and I know 121.325 can get busy, although controller and aircraft are on the same freq, not
like the 132.15/124.625 pairing. I just don't want to "clutter" up the feed. After a day of monitoring it seems to be going pretty well. There has
been an aircraft or controller covered, or blocked, by traffic on one of the other frequencies, but that's to be expected when scanning 7 channels of ATC.
